of being as prominent as bob dole was after he lost in 1986. he had given up his senate seat so had no more jobs in republican politics but he he had a substantial republican career behind him which a lot of people remembered. >> yeah. i mean, the problem for mitt romney now is the party is moving beyond him very quickly. it's only been about four weeks and his ideas are not being discussed in washington. there's not much of any reference to him. the republican leaders who are young and up and coming are talking about how to rebrand and rebuild the party and some people close to mitt romney said he doesn't really have much of an interest of being involved in that kind of conversation. >> philip ruker and jonathan capehart, thank you for joining me tonight. >> thanks. >>> coming up, in the rewrite, mike huckabee, herman cain are upset at bob costas who said what had to be said during his football coverage last night. humans -- sometimes life trips us up. and sometimes, we trip ourselves up, but that's okay. at liberty mutual insurance we can "untrip" you as you go through your life with pers
